Monu Illuminating Primer

Hello all! I’ve been using this product for the past couple of days to prep my face, before putting on my new bareminerals foundation (review coming soon).

This primer came with my recent Look Fantastic beauty box and is made by a brand I hadn’t heard of before. You can read about Monu and look through their range here.

My first impression of the primer was that it seemed rather thick. It takes a lot of blending into the skin and you only need to use a very small amount! It’s pleasantly scented and my mineral foundation applied easily on top of it. This primer does give excellent staying power; I noticed my foundation was still intact after about 18 hours yesterday! It doesn’t particularly illuminate the complexion but I was mightily impressed with how well it kept my makeup in place.
